Introduction: In previous articles i explained with examples  How to implement Custom paging in Repeater control in asp.net(C#, VB) and How to Bind,Save,Edit,Update,Cancel,Delete,Paging example in GridView in asp.net C# and  How to upload, download and delete files from GridView in Asp.net and How to bind gridview using SqlDataAdapter, SqlCommand, DataSet and Stored procedure in Asp.net.
In this article I have explained with example How to Bind data from Sql server database table in Repeater data control in asp.net using both C# and Vb.Net languages. 

Implementation: Let's create an asp.net web application to understand.
  • First create a Database in Sql server and name it "MyDataBase". Create a table in Sql server and name it "Book_Details" as shown in fig:

<connectionStrings>
                                <add name="conStr" connectionString="Data Source=LocalServer;Initial Catalog=MyDataBase;Integrated Security=True"/>
                </connectionStrings>

Note: Replace the Data source and initial catalog(database name) as per your application.

Source Code:
  •   In the design page(.aspx) place a repeater control as:
<fieldset style="width:314px">
    <legend>Repeater Example</legend>
    <asp:Repeater ID="reptBook" runat="server">
        <HeaderTemplate>
    
        <table style=" border:1px solid #c1650f; width:300px" cellpadding="0">
<tr style="background-color:#c1650f; color:White">
<td colspan="2">
<b><center>Book Details</center></b>
</td>
</tr>
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<tr style="background-color:#EBEFF0">
<td>
<table style="background-color:#EBEFF0;border-top:1px dotted #c1650f; width:300px" >
<tr>
<td>
<b>Book Name:</b>
<asp:Label ID="lblBookName" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Book_Name") %>'/>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<b>Author:</b>
<asp:Label ID="lblAuthor" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Author") %>'/>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<b>Publisher:</b>
<asp:Label ID="lblPublisher" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Publisher") %>'/>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<b>Price:</b>
<asp:Label ID="lblPrice" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Price") %>'/>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</ItemTemplate>
<FooterTemplate>
</table>
</FooterTemplate>
        </asp:Repeater>
    </fieldset>

        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select * from Book_Details", con);
        if (con.State == ConnectionState.Closed)
        {
            con.Open();
        }
